To our multi-asset offer, among other 3000+ instruments, we have decided to add liquidity for Cryptocurrencies. We know that recently virtual currencies based on blockchain technology have gained many enthusiasts.
Despite increasing popularity and publicity, it enjoys, not yet many people know how to trade with cryptocurrencies. A lot of investors are not feeling comfortable with the technology needed to store bitcoins and other altcoins. As various statistics show there is still some lack of trustworthiness in the technology used to store clients’ coins, no matter if those are virtual wallets or hard wallets. Clients are also afraid of the security of their fiat money, as many of the available exchanges are not regulated.
We very well know the history of the top crypto exchanges that have failed to deliver necessary level of security for their clients. What is more, even today many of them have some technical problems, either with API or quoting one of the several instruments from their portfolio.
Also, many exchanges do not accept fiat money. Clients have to buy Tether to transfer the funds to the exchange, so the process is time and cost consuming. Moreover, a lot of retail clients are not satisfied with the time it takes to execute a transfer of their virtual currency as well as receive a confirmation of such transfer. Of course, a lot is being done to achieve improvements. Solutions like SegWit2x or increasing the capacity of the individual blocks are being introduced, but the whole network is still growing and it will take some time to implement those changes.
Therefore, a lot of clients willing to invest or speculate on bitcoin and other altcoins are looking for the alternatives, especially that they would like to have those products leveraged with the most competitive spreads aggregated from many exchanges.
For the past several weeks the X Open Hub Trading and IT teams were looking for a solution to the challenges mentioned above. I strongly believe that we have covered all the clients’ needs and we are releasing a product that’s unique and possibly the best on the market.
